Conchita Wurst teaches us some German


OK I will skip that part.

You know what.

I am from Eastern Europe so I am sure you know more or less what I think without me saying a word more, right?

Anyway, I think everybody has said everything and anything possible in the last 48 hours on the subject. So anything I would say would be just repeating, right?

But why Wurst??? If you have no clue whatsoever of German language like I did when I came, here is a hint. Wurst means sausage in German.

So now you know too. What comes to your mind? Do not worry, I am the most innocent person in the world. At least I want to think so. And I get the same very bad thoughts.

Its not what you think.

In the recent flood of information about the recently very famous Conchita Wurst my eye caught a quote that in Germany a saying “Das is Wurst” means Ït’s nothing, not worth paying attention to.

In my 4,5 years lived in Germany so far, never heard such an expression. If somebody German is reading here, could you please confirm that expression? Or otherwise I won’t trust him/her the same way like I don’t trust her beard.

Most likely it was made not for trust after all.

    Uhm… yes, “das ist mir Wurst” is a VERY COMMONLY USED expression in the south (Bavaria) where I’m from, and also in Austria.

      Here in NRW I never heard anybody say like this! I suppose Wurst is more important here towards the North 😀 😀 😀 😀 Danke!

        It’s really common, my mother probably comes out with that on a daily basis.

        BTW – you may not have realised this – but “Conchita” is not only a fairly common first name in the Spanish speaking world, but it also has another meaning, which is “pussy”.

        “Pussy Sausage” is a very witty stage name for a drag queen, don’t you reckon? At least it made me laugh 😉
